4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this series
The end to any tale is always bitter sweet, you look for conclusion to a tale to know what will happen, but then thats it no more. The great thing about this ending is that it is also the beginning, In the e-book is chapter one of book one Under the Eagle.

A good travel read. I assume Simon supervised the writer rather than wrote it himself. Prefer Cato and macro series.

The end to any tale is always bitter sweet, you look for conclusion to a tale to know what will happen, but then thats it no more. The great thing about this ending is that it is also the beginning, In the e-book is chapter one of book one Under the Eagle.
Champion is just what you would expect it to be, the training of Pavo to face Hermes, its going to have an element of the incredulous with again a beginner in the arena facing up to champion of the arena, a man unbeaten in 50 fights. But Simon also manages to bring some sanity and drama to the training and also how that training will help in the fight. There are some lovely moments between Macro and Pavo, a pair as unlikely As Macro and Cato but who have come to respect each other, Nacrissus finally makes more of an appearance, showing that he is actually less slimy than murena.
All in all a very good solid story and a great way to end this series of tales.
Really enjoyed this series and i hope Simon does more

I can't get enough of these novels about an era in history of huge swings of fortune and danger. It is hard to imagine a world like Rome particularly based in an arena setting but the book just comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells that make it so readable and believable. A great read and as they always say a page-turner. Thank you Simon and more please.

As for the previous remarks to First sword and challenger books They definitely seem to be chapters of a book made into short stories not up to the usual standard, you just get into the nub of the story when you have to look for the next part of the story.

Good book but cheap ending. You can never stop getting tricked into more and more series. Good luck to those people who read the next series.

Like the style and how a story and history fit comfortably. Only problem I am reading his books faster than he can write them.
